Four years at Art College, many years ago, were followed by family life and family business, then later, primary teaching. Whatever job I was doing at the time, I was still able to find some space to nurture my creative side, whether it was organising fashion shows, drawing up posters, window dressing or simply displaying children's work imaginatively. I also found time for lots of craftwork - sewing, embroidery, crochet and jewellery making, until finally, about ten years ago, I discovered watercolour.
Now retired, I am lucky to have found a medium that I love and the time to pursue my passion for it. It would take a lifetime to learn how to master these slippery pigments, but that's what I love about watercolour, I love the unpredictability of the way it handles, those moments when the unexpected happens, the happy accident that turns a picture into a painting.
